NOPE! Instead, I'm just telling you that the reason I haven't posted a pretty is that I have been painting Joshua's room---yep---it's summer time---and that's when I have the time to do these awful tasks! Now, I really don't mind painting a "room"----"room" meaning WALLS----it's the woodwork that I hate---and yes, I'm painting the woodwork----
Our house is over 30 years old---think back, 1977---COUNTRY is JUST coming onto the scene---natural wood is IN----but not really natural wood---but really DARK STAINED WOODWORK===NOW, fast forward 30 years later and you have some nasty woodwork to paint---So, I have spent the last few days sanding, dusting, taping, and finally painting---THREE coats is what it takes to cover that dark woodwork--even after priming, SO---I HATE painting the woodwork.......
BUT, lest you feel I have whined you straight on to the next blog---I must say, when it's all done---it's truly worth it. It TOTALLY changes the look of the room---(and, this is my last room in the house to have to do it in) *Insert "Hallelujah Chorus" here.
Joshua wants an Indiana Jones room----so we are just painting a khaki color and I'll buy some brown bedding---put a little whip and hat on the wall and call it Indiana Jones---I figure we can change it easily enough to something else when he tires of Mr. Jones this way!! I am trying to think of something fun to do with his window treatment to help with the theme, so if you are super creative---and know how to do it CHEAP--let me know!!! I'm really not the girl who spends a ton of money on the "stuff" in our house (except for MY stuff, that is!!) ; }
My goal is to have the room back together (at least the bed in it's place and most of the furniture back to the right spots) by Wednesday night---SOOOO, perhaps I can post something then--
If you are still here, you are probably Connie or you are related to me----so thank you very much and I love you!
